We had a great trip to Colorado. We were there the December 25 until January 1. We kept busy while we were there so I am not even going to attempt to get it all down. The order of pictures is all messed up too. I'll try to get some highlights-

We took some family pictures (I really didn't like most of them but there were a couple cute ones)-

We spent time in the snow- sledding (this picture is very deceptive- the hill was actually very small, but big enough that the kids thought it was lots of fun), attempting to build snowmen and shoveling.
Little Deli is so smiley I love it. She was a little fussy on vacation but overall she did really well considering how different things were for her.

The boys loved spending time with their cousin Everett. They played with toys together, took baths, wrestled everyone, played with play dough, made cookies and watched movies together.
We saw more movies in the last week then we did all year. We saw The Blind side (loved it), The Princess and the Frog (it felt like the classic cartoons), Cloudy with a chance of meatballs, Avatar (Tyler loved it, I thought it was alright) and Sherlock Holmes (I actually really enjoyed it).
The boys got to spend lots of time with their Grandma and Grandpa.
We delivered cookies to neighbors.

Opened presents.
Got all dressed up for Church. The kids were not being the most cooperative so no great pictures. They looked really cute though.

These boys of mine love playing pretend. They pretend to be lions, pirates and here they are being superheros.
We also celebrated birthdays (mine, Tyler's Mom's and Tyler's relative Noelle- not sure the exact relation!), played lots of games ( I think we will always remember playing The Great Dalmuti- (inside joke- "pass the wee-wee"-you would have to be there)), watched way more Barney in one week then ever before, ate way too much good food and stayed up late too often.

We had a great time seeing everyone and are glad we were able to make so many great memories with everyone.
